What would you do with this turn signal?

I gently laid my bike down in the driveway while attempting to put it onto a swingarm stand and broke the right turn signal housing. The lens in split into two pieces. The body is in three. I was able to tape it together with packing tape enough to ride. It is functional. From the options in the poll what would you do with it?

This K&S Technologies - 25-3215 looks to be a close match. It is for a GSXR-600.

even with the Givi crash bars the stock signals are vulnerable in any kind of scenario where the bike ends up lying down. After eating 2 stock ones learning this in the first year of my off road exploits, I bougt a set of semi flush mount ( less than 2" profile) aftermarkets for under 10 bucks and they have performed well ever sice

I replaced mine after the same problem in my garage except the left side. Ordered the stock replacement from ronayers.com. Looks good as new!

Have a link to what you purchased?

Lighten up, Francis. If you can't take some sarcasm, an Internet forum is the last place you should be.

I replaced broken indicators with some 20 dollar Chinese aftermarket that would have a running light too is I weren't so lazy. What I got was slightly smaller but still had flexible stalks and work fine.

A local friend offered me a signal off this Bandit. I do like the looks and easy install of that Touratech setup.
